April Planning Meeting Friday 4/25

This month's meeting is going to start at 10:00 am.  The early meeting time is to accommodate the busy schedules of our board members.  If you have items or information to share, but can't make the early daytime meeting, let me know, and we could attempt an internet connection.

We have a growing list of music groups and exhibitors.  Still looking for more arts and craft vendors, so contact us if you are interested.

We are now registered as an official Firefly Watch site for the Citizen Science Project sponsored by the Museum of Science in Boston https://legacy.mos.org/fireflywatch/sign_up.  You can register as well and become an official Firefly monitor.  Join the fun and learn more at the festival on how to observe and protect the firefly.

Don't forget we are on Facebook and we want to use the social media to spread the word.  I'm challenging Friends to get our "Likes" to over 500 by the Festival.  We would also like to know if you're planning on attending, so be sure to let us know.

The spring weather is getting me so excited for the upcoming season of fireflies. We only have 2 months to go.

March Planning Meeting

Our next meeting is scheduled for Friday, March 28 at 1:00 pm at the Black Caddis Ranch B & B.

If anyone interested in becoming a Festival Sponsor or Firefly Friend please contact me at pafireflyfestival@gmail.com. We need funds to provide basic services to the visitors.  We want to keep this a FREE family-friendly event, so your support would be much appreciated.

Anyone interested in volunteering, exhibiting, performing or serving food should also contact us, so we can add you to our list.

The blog has a new refreshed look with more information about the fireflies and the festival.  Let us know what you think.

We have our blue flashlights ready for the festival thanks to Bill and John.  We will soon have this year's posters ready to distribute, and working on a brochure to put in the Visitors Center and Marienville Ranger Station.   We will soon have a new T-shirt design and will  keep you posted.

With just 4 months left, we are going to busy getting everything organized.  Did I mention we need sponsors and volunteers?  Let us know if you're interested.
